Mr. Isaac Kwame Asiamah, Minister of Youth and Sports has inspected the construction of a boy’s dormitory for the Youth Leadership and Skills Training Institute at Takrowase in the Eastern Region.
The Takrowase Youth Leadership and Skills Training Institute, which is one of the 11 centers nationwide, currently undergoing infrastructural development, was in a deplorable condition and lacked basic infrastructure, which needed a facelift to serve the needed purpose.
According to the Member of Parliament for the Atwima Mponua constituency, government found the need to revive and invest more resources to ensure these institutions were in good shape.
Mr. Asiamah added that securing the future of young people is a priority of the Nana Addo led administration and urged the youth to take advantage to acquire skills and knowledge for their future.
Madam Marian Mansa Minnah, Regional Director of the National Youth Authority (NYA), indicated that the Authority was registering and collaborating with all youth groups to get on board with respect to the acquisition of skills in the areas of agri-business, technical skills, entrepreneurship training, ICT training amongst other modules purposely designed for the youth.
She commended the Government for putting up such a legacy project for the young people describing it as “marvelous”.
Mr. Charles K. Kodua, Principal of the Institute noted that, the project has started attracting pupils to the school, as there has been a significant impact on enrollment.
